Down by the Old Mill Stream

The roof of Kenan's Mill is reflected in Valley Creek just beneath the swinging bridge. This photo was taken last spring after blooms had fallen. The mill, the bridge, charcoal kiln and mill house will open for tours come mid-March as part of Selma's annual Historic Pilgrimage. Kenan's Mill is a restoration project of the Selma-Dallas County Historic Preservation Society.

I'm singing the song in my head as I look at this simply lovely scene.

This setting is idyllic! Annie, I remember the song from learning it in Girl Scouts.

Looks like you had a lot of fun composing that shot.

Hi Steve. Yes, I did have fun getting this photo, but the bank looks steeper than it is. I the lens, then cropped the photo. The best shots of the mill, bridge and spillway are on the other side. But drought last year prevented any good spillway photos. As you can see here, the water is calm. Usually, it is rushing its way over the dam. Maybe this year, I can get that one. We're getting a lot of rain these days.
